Stacy earned a BFA in film and television production from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. In addition to prior work in film and TV, he’s worked in advertising, politics, and public service in various production management and communication roles.
Originally from Los Angeles, Stacy lives in Portland, Oregon with his husband, trying not to mind the ghosts in the basement where he writes with a space heater and a small therapy lamp.
